CBC was founded by the Brothers of the Christian Schools in 1850 at Eighth and Cerre Streets in downtown St. Louis. In 1855, the school was granted a college charter by the State of Missouri. In 1882, a spacious new campus opened at Kingshighway and Easton Avenue (today`s Sherman Park). Young men could enter this school as early as fifth grade, complete high school, college, and even earn advanced graduate degrees. A tragic fire destroyed the school in 1916. Plans immediately got underway for the construction of a new school, which reopened as a secondary school on Clayton Road in 1922, and which served the community for 82 years, until the move to Town & Country in 2003.SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT/PHILOSOPHYChristian Brothers College is a Catholic, Lasallian high school preparing young men of diverse academic, social, racial, geographic, religious, and economic backgrounds for college and for life.
